You get the ace = 52% advantage.
Dealer gets the ace = 36% disadvantage.
I'll take those odds.
If I am playing two hands head up with the dealer, I like my chances of getting the ace and winning the hand. I also like my chances of a bj, more so in a plus count, but even in a negative count. It's not rocket science. If the odds favored you to get an ace, are you telling me you would not raise your bet?
The key words are "if you know". I still think in shoe games there are too many false key cards. Do you have any quantitative data to show how your ace prediction compares to other techniques such as counting?
At least in what you are quoting of mine, I did not say "if you know", I said "if the odds favored you". ZG did some write up on key carding elsewhere (it's searchable). It shows the simple odds, and yes, it potentially can be much better than card counting if you're good at it.
